Best form in recent times has come at 6f/7f and bounced back from a poor effort at Limerick on her penultimate start with a fair effort at Galway last time out. One to consider in first-time tongue tie.

Has hardly beaten a thing home on her last four racecourse appearances and needs to rediscovered the early season form she showed at Limerick and Gowran Park to get competitive.

Won over this trip at Gowran Park in April but slightly below the next twice; her latest run wasn't horrible so there were signs of returning to form; market might be the best guide.

Seemed to be harshly treated for winning a maiden at the Curragh in May but still managed a respectable 3rd place on her next run at the same track; whether she is capable of winning off this mark remains to be seen but obvious chance if in the mood

Stayed on well to win a Tipperary maiden in July before not getting the best of runs when sent handicapping later the same month at the Curragh. Will be suited by a strong pace and might just that here. Interesting contender.

Has not been rewarded for some consistent performances in defeat and looks to be in the handicapper's grip; first time blinkers tried to here which may sharpen her up; check any market moves.

Couldn't have made a better transition to the handicap sphere with two wins from two starts in this company but lost all chance for the hat-trick with a slow start last time out. Step back up in trip should help and looks a leading contender.

Had some fair form in the UK including being placed ina decent handicap at Beverley on her final start for Hugo Palmer; needs to bounced back from poor run at Galway latest but looks a very interesting candidate in first time headgear.

All out to win a similar race at Galway last time out over this trip; the manner of that win suggest she might struggle off her revised handicap mark but certainly one that warrants closer examination.

Needs to put a poor run at Galway last time out behind her but would hold every chance on her previous form this season including winning over a mile at Bellowstown in July. Not particularly well handicapped now but definite chance on best of form.

Does not win very often but has made the frame on a number of occasions but has not been done any favours for her consistency by the handicapper. Probably needs to drop a few more pounds to get really competitive.

Wonderfully consistent filly who rarely runs below par; by consequence she is not particularly well handicapped and may need to be given some respite before getting in the winner's enclosure for the first time; excellent place claims.

Daughter of Dawn Approach had been running well in defeat and with great credit in three starts this term before landing a Ballinrobe maiden over 1m1½f on good ground last month. Worth a market check on handicap debut.

Hard to assess but showed a little more last time out at Gowran Park after finishing stone last at this track the time before. Edging down the handicap and not without ability, a market check is advised.

On a long losing run and although now nearly back down to a winning mark she will be inconvenienced by racing from 2lb out of the handicap; others preferred.

Forecast

Cruella Dovil (5/1), Sonaiyla (13/2), Baladiya (13/2), Rita Levi (13/2), Stormy Belle (8/1), Mater Matuta (8/1), Syrena (9/1), Galtee Mist (10/1), Peshkova (12/1), Dragons Call (14/1), Thiswaycadeaux (16/1), Dame Kyteler (16/1), Outside Inside (16/1), Honor Oak (16/1), Highly Approved (20/1), Deira Surprise (25/1), Waitaki (33/1)

Verdict

DAME KYTELER is likely to get the strong pace she needs with two confirmed front runners in the line-up and can bounce back from a below par performance last time out at the Curragh. She is open to improvement and looks on a reasonable handicap mark. Dragons Call likes to run from the front and she was not disgraced when slightly upped in class last time out at Naas. If allowed to dictate things at the head of the field she may be hard to pass. Cruella Dovil is a consistent filly who will give a good account of herself as usual. She has excellent place claims at the very least.
